New Flame Burger Concept Comes to Chandler

Categories: Now Open

The building's signage isn't even up, but Flame Burger is already packing Angus patties between buns.
Bacon and cupcakes may be the culinary trends of choice these days, but we can't ignore the amount of burger joints popping up in Phoenix. Recent months have seen the emergence of coal-fired burgers, Fat Ass Burgers and the California-based Habit Burger, and now another new hamburger concept has hit the East Valley.

​Flame Burger
, scheduled to officially open this week at 2160 North Arizona Avenue in Chandler, had a surprise soft opening on Saturday and was jam-packed during peak lunch hours. Located in a former El Pollo Loco, the remodeled restaurant now sports a classic burger palace look, with umbrellas, a red-and-white diner color palette and cheeky sayings stenciled on one wall (for example, "Mooo Bueno" and "Pack Your Buns").

Hey, it beats the Bible quotes you'll spot on the wall at a certain other burger-and-custard chain.

The new restaurant's menu focuses on flame-grilled burgers made with natural 100% beef from Niman Ranch, with topping options ranging from chili to jalapenos and cheese. The meat is sustainably raised, and cows are fed an all-vegetarian diet.  

If you're not keen on beef, Flame Burger also offers veggie and turkey burger options, plus gyros and hot dogs. It seems like an eclectic mix, but according to the owner, "gyros, burgers and dogs are the top three most-consumed foods right now."

Moo-ve over, chicken! Flame Burger's mural is all about the beef.
  

Prices seem reasonable at $1.99-$3.99 for Chicago Red Hot dogs and sausages, $5 for an original burger combo with waffle fries and a drink, and $5.99 for a flame-grilled gyro combo.

Flame Burger is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

This place won't last. The burgers were under cooked and very greasy and the taste of soywas heavy. The waffle fries were nothing to write home about. We won't be going back.

I for one LOVE the snarky bible jab!  I find it terribly offensive that Culver's and In-and-Out have religious propaganda on their walls and packaging.  It's certainly their business and they're right, the same way it's my right to never fork any of my cash over to them.  They have their lies and BS, they don't need my money

This place is BOMB! Its about time they put a good hamburger place here in Az. Their meat is fat and juicy. They have a secret sauce that makes it taste even better. The price is great as well. I hope this place last because there are no good hamburger places here in az. The only thing good enough to beat this place is IN N OUT. BUT, two different hamburger places and two different taste. I will DEFINITELY return. This places is located on Az Ave between warner and Elliot.

"Hey, it beats the Bible quotes you'll spot on the wall at a certain other burger-and-custard chain."

I'm all for lefty newspapers being snarky (I'm lefty! I'm snarky!), but this is just a cheap shot and has really nothing to do with the quality of the food and the restaurant as a whole. Plus, awful puns may or may not beat Bible quotes. In-N-Out features Bible quotes too, y'know...

I called my friend to tell him about this place and used the words flame burger and soft opening, he wasn't sure if it was a joke or not.

For the record New Times couldn't give us an address?
